Wings of the Morning

The elbow in the little stream caught my attention, as Oshie and I were walking. Oshie is farther down the beach, but she is heading back toward me. There is also a two-masted sailing vessel that is hardly visible, between the two sea stacks on the right… and a line of pelicans flying low over the surf. Yet it was the light play on the breaking waves and mist that brought my camera to my eye.

Quote of the Day: “Sadness flies on the wings of the morning and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.” ~Jean Giraudoux

This is one of your more spectacular shots (which is saying a LOT) Randall. You can even find a way to make tire tracks look golden and gorgeous. #1490397
